Northern Members
Busy in Victoria
Viotoria, Nov. 18:—The third
week of the session oloses with
Legislation well advanced and
with everybody very busy, having
in view finishing up in time to get
home for Christmas,
Among the most active of all the
busy people, are the northern mem
hers. Hon. A. M. Manson is
modernizing, some of the ancient
laws, and his office is the storm
centre where many delegations
gather in regard to liquor, labor,
industry, and a dozen other
matters. Hon. T. D. Patullo,
having been some time in office,
has the legislation in his department all up-to-date, but he has
seldom half an hour to himself.
No minister has.
H. F. Kergin, member for Atlin,
is one of the busiest of private
members. He is on a number of
committees and his influence is
constantly felt. As a member of
the public accounts committee, - it
has been his duty to help probe
into the affairs of the various
departments, and he is always on
the job. He also finds it his duty
to oppose the efforts of the leading
opposition members in their efforts
to bring discredit on the departments, and see that they keep to
facts and do not overstep the
bounds of legitimate criticism.
H. G. Perry, of Prince George,
is also keen in regard to his work,
and has shown some ability in
debate.
On the whole the north is very
well represented, and is often heard
from.
Swamp Point Quarry
is Closed Down
The quartz quarry at Swamp,
Point, which is situated up the
Portland Canal, and whioh has
been operated by the Granby Co.
for a number of years, has been
closed down, the lime rock being
exhausted. The lime rock mined
at Swamp Point was used by the
Granby Co. for fluxing purposes at
the smelter.
It is understood that another
quarry will be developed on the
property next spring, and in the
meantime the ore from the Esperanza, at Alice Arm, and the
Premier, at Stewart, with the lime
rock in storage, will be sufficient
for fluxing purposes.
Mr. A. B. Wing, who was in
oharge of operations, will spend
the winter in the south in company
with Mrs. Wing. Mr. and Mrs. J.
Ferguson, will move over to
Hidden Creek mine. ' Jimmy was
operating the compressor at Swamp
Point.
Don't Forget the Elk Ladies'
Card Party and Dance, December 1st., 8 p.m
Alice Arm Holds
Weekly Debate
The weekly debating classes held
by the Alice Arm Debating Society
appear to have become a permanent
institution. Fivecoiiseeutivt;debates
have been held, and great interest
has been taken in them; as is
shown by the number of people
attending.
The debate held last Tuesday
evening at the Coliseum drew a
large crowd, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The
subject for the evening was: "Resolved that man will do more for
the love of a woman than he will
for the love of gold." Those
speaking in favor of the women
were: Al. Falconer. R. D. Hallett.
W. R. McLeod. Those speaking
for the golden side of the question
were: J. McDonald. L. Paulcer.
E. Moss. C. P. Riel acted as
Chairman.
Owing to a Five Hundred drive
being arranged for the same evening in connection with the debate,
the speakers were allowed only five
miuutes each, to place their views
before the audience.
- Both sides put up a strong argument iu the limited time, and on
the vote being taken, those speaking in favor of gold were declared
winners. The vote being: gold, 16,
women 15, three ballots were
spoiled.
At the conclusion of the debate
a Five Hundred Drive was held,
and a very enjoyable two hours
were spent. The prize winners for
the evening were: ladies, Miss
Nettie Hogberg: gentlemen, C. P.
Riel.   Booby prize, H. Fowler.
Everyone were delighted with
the evening's entertainment, and
it was the wish of everyone present
that another social event will be
held in connection with a debate at
an early date.

Do Your Shopping Early,
In a few more weeks, Christmas
will be here again, and the usual
last minute rush of excited shoppers
will no doubt be again witnessed.
It is a fact that one of the weaknesses of mankind is to let things
slide until the last minute, and this
is particularly true of Christmas
shopping. Do your shopping
early this year, for by so doing you
have a larger stock to choose from;
you avoid yourself a lot of needless
worry, and you help the overworked store clerks from losing
considerable patience and temper
during the few days previous to
Christmas. To ensure your
Christmas cards and presents being
received in time, post them early.
The post office clerks are not
supermen.
Good Roads and
Trails a Necessity.
Several schemes have lately
been advocated by members of
the Provincial Government, for the
filling up of the vacant lands of the
province, by bringing settlers here
and putting them on the land, but
the fact that transportation is
needed for the settlers seems to be
lost sight of. The government is
also anxious to increase the mineral
production of the province, but are
very tardy in building the necessary
means of transportation, in order to
foster production. It does not
matter how many ambitious
schemes are outlined for increasing
the population, and the mineral]
output. If roads are not built then
all othes efforts are futile. The
future prosperity of the province
depends entirely upon the mileage
of good roads and trails built each
year, and this fact especially effects
the north. The northern part of
the province is very sparsely pop>
ulated, and it never will be
otherwise until serious consideration
is given to the building of a
system of good roads. A lot of
publicity has lately been given in
the press of the south, in regard to
catering to the tourist traffic by
building paved roads for them to
ride on, and the government seems
inclined to favor the scheme. A
few foreign tourists flying through
the country for a few hours is not
going to build up our population
and help lower our taxes, nor will
they  develop the   vast   natural
resources of this wonderful north.
The future prosperity of this
province depends upon having a
large, contented population within
its borders, and the building of
more roads and trails is the only
way it will be accomplished.
The World's Deep Diggings.
Always we have wondered why
people get hard up as Christmas
draws near. And we wonder if it
affects other business. Folks just
naturally stop paying the newspaperman until after New Year's.
But what's the use of worrying?
We are thankful there are no
hospital or undertakers bills to pay.
We are thankful we are not rich
and worried about numerous investments. And we are thankful
we live in a town this size and
don't have to endure a continual
strain to make both ends meet in a
wild endeavour to keep up with
fast friends in a cold and cruel city.
—Cumberland Islander.
Big Appropriation
for Stewart Disirict
Stewart is expecting a big appropriation for work on roads,
trails, and bridges next year, according to an article published in
the Portland Canal News. The
sum of $95,000 is expected
to be expended by the government
in the Stewart district next
year, and the work will
consist of building a new road
to the wharf at the foot of the hill,
at a cost of about $30,000. Two
spans are to be constructed on the
site of the new Bear river bridge,
at an estimated cost of $25,000 or
$30,000. The route of the Bear
river wagon road will be ohanged,
and thcroad improved, which will
cost another $25,000. Other trails
will be built, and the usual main-
tainance work on existing roads
and trails will also be done.
The deepest mine in the world is
at Morro Velho, Brazil. It has
reached a vertical depth of 6426
feet below the surface of the earth.
The great depth is attained npt by
one shaft, but by a series of five,
staggered to follow the 45 degrees
pitoh of the lode with whioh it is
conaeoted by crosscuts. In India
there is a mine in which a depth of
5400 feet has been reached, and in
Michigan there, is a copper mine
whioh is one mile deep vertically.
In South Africa there is a mine
where the engineers are planning
to sink a shaft to a depth, of 7000
feet.
Pulpwood Reserves of Province
According to reliable estimates
made by men closely identified with
the industry, British Columbia posses-
es about 225,000,000 cords of pidp wood,
compared to 300,000,000 in the provinces of Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
The pulp and paper industry of Canada ranks second only to that of
the United States. At present the
United States is producing 1,110,000
tons of newsprint annually, compared
to about 800,000 tons produced in
Canada. But production in Canada is
mounting steadily while that of the
United States is on the decline.

Mining Active at Stewart
Mining activity is still brisk at
Stewart. Development work is
being proceeded with on several
properties, and the prospects are
exceptionally bright for a bnsy
season of development work next
year. Judging from all reports
Stewart will be one of the busiest
mining camps in the province next
summer.
To Develop Iron Reserves
Fifty thousand dollars will be spent
on a further investigation of iron resources of the province in co-operation
with the federal authorities, according
to a bill introduced in the legislature
by Hon. William Sloan, minister of
mines.

Dance would be discussed when the
Jjeague and Elk's entertainment
liommittees met next month, which
liad been agreed upon, for the
letting of dance dates for January
|vnd February.
A letter was read from the Mine
lOlub, asking for a meeting with a
lommittee from the League Council
for the purpose of discussing the
handling of recreation at the Mine,
Iritis meeting was left to the Ways
Itnd Means Committee to arrange
littd deal with.
The Chairman asked about baseball uniforms and if they had all
■been returned, and suggested
rounding up the basket jerseys.
Mr. Armour wanted to know the
liature of the Christmas Entertain-
Jment. Mr. Rowley and the Chair
|outliiied what was intended.
Mr. Seidelman asked when the
Imedals for baseball and football
lohampions would arrive. In this
(connection there was nothing to
■report, that they had been arranged
Ifor, the orders had been acknowledged aud these would ■ undoubtedly come forward in due time.
Mr. Selfe asked for the Recre-
lation  Hall,   for   the  nights   of
■January  17th, and February 14th
foil behalf of Mr. P. Ryan.    Mr.

January 17th.   be   granted   Mr.
|Ryan on the usual conditions.
Mr.   Armour   then  asked   the
Douncilto accept his resignation.
|He  stated  that possibly he had
disagreed with the Council ,and the
Seoretary a great many times,' had
fought them in fact, in Counoil,

outside the building where .the
Council met. He would like to
take advantage of the opportunity
he said, of thanking those who
stood behind him in electing him
to the Counoil on several oooasions.
Other demands on his time made it
imperative that he resign. The
Chairman expressed regret because
of Mr. Armour's deoision, and Mr.
Seidelman moved that in accepting

ivote of thanks front the Counoil
for his services to the Community

The World's Mirror.
It's a gay old world when you're gay,
And a glad old world when you're
glad,
But whether you play
Or go toiling away,
It's a sad old world when- you're sad.
It's a grand old world if you're great
And a mean old world if you're small;
It's a world full of hate
For the foolish who prate
Of the uselessness of it all.
It's a beautiful world to see,
Or it's dismal in every zone;
The thing it must be
In your gloom or your glee
Depends on yourself alone.

Geo. Young, district superintendent of roads and trails, moved 'his
office from the rear of his residence
to the government lot on Telegraph
Street. While it is not a very imposing building for one of our main
thoroughfares, it helps to fill up.
The few flakes of snow which
fell last Saturday evening, disappeared the following day, and
the ground has beeu clear of snow
throughout the week. From all
reports, snow shovelling and sleigh-]
ing have been the chief pastimes of
Hyder and Stewart for the past
four weeks.
The camp used by Fred Miller
at Way Point, was towed up on
Sunday by the Awake for use at
logging camp across by the Illiance
River. George Tuttle, who was
never known to tell a lie, said that
on the way up the wind blew so
hard that the tow line broke
three (or was it 33) times, that they
were at the mercy of the wind and
waves for a whole day off the
rocky coast of . Silver City. The
wind blew the scow along so hard
that the Awake going at full
speed could not keep up with her,
and finally the scow was towing
the Awake around the bay, there
is a lot more, but space does not
permit.
